Not Your Burial, It’s Your Baptism 7
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1 Cor 10:13
Bible Reading: Exo 14:15-23
There in nothing coming your way that will be too much for you. The word of God says that. You may think it is too much for you but the word calls it common. It may not be exactly the same as your challenge, but the affliction of the same intensity and purpose is happening to your brethren all over the world.
The challenge that may be beyond you are the ones that will never be in your path; the Lord will lead you around them; they will not be in your direct path to the future. Every other ones that you face are those which you must conquer or bear as you stand strong in the grace of God which is within you.
No weight-lifting athlete ever receives the applause or the medal until he has been able to lift up and stand strong under the weight. To accomplish this you must be decisive about conquering or finishing your race, Heb 12:1-2. You can do that by flinging off you every superfluous and extra weight or luggage that you don’t need for the journey and every sin that easily distracts or that troubles persistently. These are speed killers and race destroyers. God will not deal with these for you; you will, however not by might nor by power but as you stand strong in His grace.
The example of Christ is there for everyone that we must look away from these light afflictions and allow them to work within us a far more eternal weight of glory.
A man only gets crowned after he must have conquered.
